.VV.CC: 



MOUNT WACHUSETT COMMUNITY COLLEGE was founded in 1963 by the Massa- 
chusett Board of Regional Community Colleges in accordance with Chapter 605, Acts of 
1958, amended by Chapter 737, Acts of 1964. Mount Wachusett became the eighth com- 
munity college in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In November of 1963, the Board 
of Community Colleges appointed Dr. Arthur F. Haley as President of the College. 

The College was located in Gardner, Massachusetts with the charge that it should 
serve the communities of north central Massachusetts. The first class for Mount Wachu- 
sett Community College enrolled in September, 1964; classes began on October 5th at the 
National Guard Armory. 

On November 5, 1964, the College moved to its present Elm Street location, which 
the city of Gardner has provided as temporary quarters, pending construction of a new 
campus. With steadily increasing enrollment, the College leased an additional facility in 
downtown Gardner. This extension of the College campus opened in January, 1969, and 
consists of four classrooms, three laboratories, faculty offices and a student lounge. 

In October of 1970, the College leased a third facility. This additional campus, sit- 
uated on Pearl Street, is the home of the Humanities Division and provides facilities for 
an art studio, four classrooms, faculty offices and a student lounge. 

The permanent campus will be located on the 277 acre site donated by the city of 
Gardner, which is located on Route 140. The anticipated date of occupancy is fall of 1974. 
The campus will be built on the premise that the ultimate enrollment will be 2200

Dedicated To 

O. V. Paliotti 




Farewell To Professor Paliotti 

By: Mike Carroll 

Mount Wachusett will soon be losing one of their most respected and honored profes- 
sors in the person of Prof. O. V. Paliotti. Prof. Paliotti will be completing his seventh year 
here at the Mount. 

The list of Prof. Paliotti's accomplishments while here at the Mount is staggering. He 
has been solely responsible for numerous speakers which otherwise would have by-passed 
Mount Wachusett had it not been for his powerful influence and prestige. He was also the 
founder of the Economics' Club to which he is now the advisor, and has belonged to numer- 
ous committees. 

Among his hobbies are music, research, fishing and traveling. He has traveled exten- 
sively throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, England, Holland, Austria, Germany, 
Switzerland, Monaco, and France. 

At this time, I would like to - on behalf of the students and faculty - wish Professor 
Paliotti a happy and peaceful retirement, and thank him for seven years of hard work.

OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT 



Congratulations to the Class of 1973. We had a great year 
in many respects. Your class was one of the brightest. I and many 
others are in awe of the high academic achievement of your good 
selves, evidenced by the many awards at graduation. Quick place- 
ment in job opportunities was highest this year, reflecting this 
achievement . 

This year the design and construction of the new campus pro- 
ceeded in an expeditious manner. It is my hope that many of you 
will return for further educational experiences especially in our 
new campus -- emphasizing our desire to be the "college for life." 

The social program this past year was excellent, enabling 
me and my wife to meet many of you outside of the classroom. The 
pages of this yearbook will recall to your mind many of these 
pleasant experiences. I just reviewed my own yearbook from alma 
mater and it seems I get even more pleasure reviewing my past as- 
sociations as the years go by. I am sure you will too! 

My wish to you is to continue your great efforts which will 
meet with the same success that you have enjoyed here. Please 
stop in and visit when you have a chance. I should like to con- 
tinue my association with you.

Dear Graduates: 

Once again I say farewell to a fine group of young men 
and women who just two short years ago, enrolled at the "Mount". 

You have ample reason to be proud of the fact that you 
survived the two difficult years which saw many of your class- 
mates fall by the wayside. I am completing my ninth year work- 
ing with students here and have seen more than 4000 come and go 
in similar fashion. I frequently lament the fact that we are 
a two year institution because one hardly gets to know you 
when you depart. 



You are venturing into the outside 
and international problems of enormous 
At the same time, the portion of your e 
is a good deal better education than wa 
a few years ago. With it, and with the 
your use of it, you face a new world wi 
of your parents did not even complete g 
nothing of high school education. With 
off to a better start than they, and th 
over the years have enjoyed a much bett 
one thinks of the material things of li 



world faced with national 
gravity and complexity, 
ducation just now completed, 
s generally available only 
se challenges to stimulate 
th much promise. Many 
rammar school to say 

your background, you are 
anks to their efforts 
er life, at least when 
fe. 



The same high hopes and the same rugged determination you 
brought here two years ago, now tempered with knowledge, skills, 
and judgement garnered in these years of study, will serve you well. 

I bid you Godspeed, with much pride, best wishes, and every 
confidence that you will make all of us ati Mount Wachusett 
Community College extremely proud. Come back often to see us.

WHAT IS STUDENT ACTIVITIES? --The college believes that active participation in 
student government and student activities is an important part of one's total educational 
experience.

tivities provide an opportunity for students to become actively involved in college com- 
munity life. The student council provides experience in the processes of democratic 
government. Clubs offer the student an opportunity for personal growth. The following 
clubs are open to students in good standing: Association of Collegiate Broadcasters, 
Chorale, Creative Writing, Drama Club, Elderly Visitation Action Committee, Engineer- 
ing Club, Future Economists, Harbinger (College Newspaper) Highlander Chess Club, 
Humanities Club, Karate Club, I Magazine, Literature Club, Photography Club, Riding 
Club, Secretarial Club, Ski Club, Student Council, Yearbook. 

STUDENT PUBLICATIONS: Several student publications offer a variety of opportuni- 
ties to students interested in writing, editing, photography, art work, and publishing. 
The official student newspaper, "The Harbinger, " the literary magazine "I", and the an- 
nual college yearbook. 

ATHLETICS: A program of intercollegiate and intramural athletics encourages ac- 
tive participation by all students. Competitive intercollegiate activities include soccer, 
basketball, ice hockey, baseball, tennis, golf, and skiing. Women's intercollegiate pro- 
grams in basketball, tennis, skiing, Softball and cheerleading are available.

IT WAS A GREAT YEAR 



bv PETE LORE 



Here at Mount Wachusett Community College, the 1972-73 school 
year has seen sports have their ups and downs. Do you remember 
everything that has happened'.' Before I resign m.\ position, let's 
go back into September and work our way to Ma>. 

1 can remember Bob Woo telling me a story about the first day 
of soccer practice. Bob was near the bench loosening up for the 
opening-day workout. He walked over to a fella with long hair 
and a beard. This guy ceased his bending exercises when Bob 
whispered, 'T hear the coach looks like a hippie. W hich one is 
he'"' The hairv fella replied. 'T'm the coach." 

Hob Hubert looked good in his rookie year with the soccer 
team. But he's still trying to get the school's insurance policy 
to pay for his bruised shins. 

Gar\ Fisher got the C} \oung Award. He threw more pitches 
than any other soccer goalie in the league. 

Although the soccer team did have a rough season, I think next 
season will be ver.\ successful. A lot of guys who played this year 
will be returning. Now all they have to do is talk Coach Catalini 
into coming back. Maybe the Student Council will give him a 
S10 raise. 

This year's flag-football game was a classic. In this dual 
between the Freshmen and the Twin City Chiefs, Butch Praplaski 
led in scoring, Dennis Mills led in tackles, and Fitchburg led in 
girls. Bob Ro\ came with spikes, Mr. Murphy came with a broken 
finger, and Pat Cefalo came with a fifth. Top starters in the game 
were Butch Praplaski at quarterback, Ed Fredette at middle, and 
alan Collette at left out. 

Then basketball and hockev were the sports to watch. Incidently, 
this is probably where Dean Hogan lost some of the money for 
athletics. 

.After all. Jessica Mortis did make her team look like the Playboy 
bunnies from Las Vegas with those sexy outfits. As a matter of 
fact, I think Maureen O'Brien was offered a job to pose for Pent- 
house. 

And when Berkshire heard that the Mount had a girl named 
Kilroy playing, the Mount won by forfeit; Berkshire was afraid 
to show up. 

Do you remember Coach Marc ••Superfly" Eisenstock? He's 
the only coach that stops off at Beef and Brew instead of McDonald's 
on the way home from an away game. 

And how about the uniforms the basketball team got? Bob Duteau 
is still trying to figure out how to work the suspenders. Glenn 
Bizzotto is still trying to figure out how to put on the bowtie. 
Dean Hogan, did we have to be that extravagant? 

But we did cut some corners. We saved money by using the 
school van. One day, I saw the men's and women's teams board- 
ing the van. Bill Nunnally told me about some of the happy hours 
on board. Some things were bumpy, and I don't think he was 



talking about the ride. And 1 don't think a quarter keg was on 
Eisenstock's equipment list. 

Then corners were cut on the hockey team. Coach Ilalvorsen 
didn't get his new uniforms in time, so he saved the athletic 
budget S50U. But, Mr. Halvorsen, don't you think Baldarelli was 
cold playing in his underwear? 

And Mr. Ilalvorsen, we know you were a hockey great while in 
>our prime. But I don't think you had to post the first game as 
••Team Mount vs. Team Berkshire." 

On the other side of the coin, the cheerleaders received iniforms 
costing $64 apiece. Sixt\-four dollars is a bit expensive. One 
person that agrees with me is Charlie Sardelis. Charlie doesn't 
think they needed the padded bras. But Dean Hogan said they did. 
Who knows Maybe they did. 

Anyway, Dean Hogan ran out of money (he also ran off to 
Florida). The Council came to his rescue and the Harbinger did 
its part. 

Coach Tammi once again took care of the annual Faculty- 
Student Basketball Game and the Schlitz. He could really dribble 
on the court and at the bar. After Coach Tammi collected his 
money from Andy Cousins after the game, he became engaged in 
another game -- blackjack. 

And Bob Heidi was in rare form on the floor -- playing basket- 
ball and dancing. He took a lot of shots from the floor and the bar. 
Mr. Reidl's idea of a jumper is a double scotch. (Gerry O'Brien 
better not laugh.) 

The tennis team did have a good season. After all, how could 
the officials pass up a salary like 

Mr. Tammi was such a great a u .iat he brought the team out 
to eat at the end of the season. I w .«.der if the inflationary prices 
at Kelly s affected the banquet in any way. 

Coach Awdycki's baseball team looked good this year -- off 
the diamond. I'm sorry Coach, but the Student Council really 
couldn't afford new bats. You weren't too bad on baseballs this 
year. I think it's a good idea to have everyone bring their own. 
Maybe next year the Student Council will buy some balls -- wiffle 
balls. See you in Orleans, Coach. 

Golf.' Well, Mr. Gilman, I think you got a haircut for nothing. 
You still didn't have the Palmers and Trevinos that you needed. 
But I think it was a good idea to have Larry Chapman give free 
Mount Wachusett pens to recruits -- without ink, of course. 

Yes, it was a great year: But will John Catalini get a haircut? 
Will Marc Eisenstock buy the team a plane? Will Coach Tammi 
play better tennis and better blackjack"? Will Coach Awdycki get 
some bats? Will Bob Gilman grow back his hair? And will Dean 
Hogan take a course in economics? You will hear the answers 
to these and other questions in the next dulling episode of General 
Apathy. 



The above article is an authorized reprint from (College Newspaper) The HARBINGER, By 
Sports Editor: Peter Lore. . . 



Due to our small yearbook staff, it was difficult for us to cover all sports activities --there- 
fore we have used the above article written by sports editor of our college newspaper, Peter 
Lore. We feel his article sums up the entire sports season at Mount Wachusett Community Col- 
lege for 1972-1973. 

We regret that we could not cover every game or match, nor photograph more games than 
we did as you have seen in this sports section. . .

The caps and gowns worn in formal academic affairs in American colleges today 
are the direct descendants of the everyday costumes worn in the Universities of Medi- 
aeval England. Each school had its peculiar drew so that an Oxford man could be dis- 
tinguished from a Cambridge man. or a divinity student from a layman. 

Because of the tremendous growth of American colleges and the attendant confu- 
sion which would result if each were to adopt a distinctive costume, the Intercollegiate 
Bureau of Academic Costume was organized. The Bureau has established a uniform 
code which over 700 institutions have adopted. Harvard, practically alone, still clings 
to its own traditional costume. 

The distinctions of the Code are simple, there being three types of gowns and 
three types of hoods for bachelors, masters, and doctors, respectively. The bachelor's 
gown has a long pointed sleeve; whereas the master's gown has a long closed sleeve, 
square at the end with an arc of a circle just above the bottom. The sleeve extends 
well below the knee, the arm coming through a slit near the elbow. The doctor's gown 
is characterized by a voluminous bell-shaped sleeve on which appear three velvet bars. 
The colors of the bars are the colors of the faculty which granted the degree but may 
be black. 

The hood is the most important and distinctive feature of the Code. The hoods 
for all degrees are lined with silk 'in the official academic color or colors of the institu- 
tion conferring the degree and have an edging or trim of velvet, the color of which 
indicates the course or faculty to which the degree pertains. The lining is exposed 
when ihe hood is worn. The bachelor's hood is rather short with a narrow velvet edg- 
ing. It is not worn by candidates for the baccalaureate degree but only by those upon 
whom this degree has been previously conferred. The master's hood is considerably 
longer, has a wider velvet edging, and exposes more of the lining. The doctor's hood 
has wide panels at the side and is easily recognized since, of the three types of hoods, 
it has the widest velvet edging, greatest length, and fullest exposure of the lining. 

The black mortarboard cap with tassel is worn with each type of gown. Those 
holding a doctor's degree are privileged to wear a gold tassel. Masters and bachelors 
wear tassels that are either black or of the color appropriate to the course in which 
they are being graduated. 

Some of the colors, which may be observed at this commencement and which 
symbolize various courses or faculties, are as follows: 

Arts, Letters, Humanities White 

Commerce. Accountancy, Business Dull Gray 

Economics Copper 

Education Light Blue

DEAR READER: 

The 1973 "HYLANDER" has again been printed with an objective base- -representing 
the efforts of the entire staff to give you, the students of MWCC, and our community a 
long lasting memory of our 1972-73 scholastic year at MOUNT WACHUSETT COMMUN- 
ITY COLLEGE. ag 

The "HYLANDER" staff worked very hard to record as much of the academic year 
as possible and with the time available, which was volunteered by each staff member. 

It was difficult at times to cover all college activities and sports due to the coverage 
time available by staff members, but what we did cover or was made available to us has 
been presented in this book. 

After a lengthly presentation drr our part, the MWCC Student Council, allocated 
enough money to this staff to publish the YEARBOOK without having to solicit advertise- 
ments to help compensate expenses. 

I would like to extend my personal thanks to my division editors who assisted me in 
all ways. First: to retain the tradition of a YEARBOOK at MWCC; secondly: convince 
those whom we had to, that a YEARBOOK is part of college life; third: to get, organize, 
and maintain a staff; fourth: strive to get what was needed- -material, copy, photographs, 
etc. in order to meet our deadlines. THEY ARE: General Manager: Steve Kacian; Busi- 
ness Manager: Jean Dennett; Speciality Editor: Kathy Graves; Art Editor: Ralph Higgins; 
Photography Editor: Eric Vickery; Staff Members: June Waugh; Louise Cormier; Linda 
Sherksnis; Melissa Kaylor; and Michael Greenwood. 

Special thanks to our photographers: Ray LeBlanc and John Langlois, also Myra 
Greenburg and Walter Ballou assisted in taking pictures. Vin Ialenti, Bob Halpin, Bill 
Daring, and Frank Hirons contributed photographs when we needed them. This year we 
had co-advisors who assisted us in every way possible: Dennis Morrill and Walter Bal- 
lou; plus those people already named on our credit page. 

Working as an editor, staff member, or in any other capacity, each person gains the 
knowledge of assuming important duties and carrying them out, the demands and re 
sponsibilities to accomplish that task; also written communication and using business 
goals and English terms to publish a book like this. 

FOR MYSELF, this is my second year as Editor- -in- -Chief of the MWCC "HYLAND 
ER". It has been an experience in itself to take on a task like this and to accomplish the 

task with a good feeling. I encountered many hardships 
but was able to face them and still strive toward and 
reach my goal --to publish a high quality YEARBOOK with 
what we had available to us. I have been able to put to use 
some of the techniques which I gained from classroomw 
struction and past experiences. I am very confident that 
next year's eo -editors Jean Dennett and Steve Kacian, 
have their own ideas and will do everything they can to 
publish a high quality book also. VjV^ 

Thank you again everyone --including my staff, and 
Dayl Halvorsen, the MWCC Secretaries, and most of all 
Deafi John P. Hogan for being so co-operative with me in 
mai&ng my job as Editor- -in- -Chief that much easier. 

_ ^, Best of luck, 

David W. Bartlett 
Editor- -in- -Chief

PURPOSE: . Kf 

The College motto, ""SERVICE TO MAN AND HIS WORLD", best emphasizes the 
overall role of the College. The purpose of the College is as obvious as it is signifi- 
cant - to provide high quality education at low cost for a large class of students who 
wish to attend the first two years of college within commuting distance of home. In 
serving the interests of such students, the College illustrates the acceptance of the 
principle that higher education is, in a democratic society, a prime public 
responsibility. 

Specifically, the College provides instruction for several categories of students. 
First, it provides the first two years of the four-year baccalaureate program in Lib- 
eral Arts, Business Administration and Business Education. Secondly, it provides 
career programs of professional and technical education for students who do not nec^ 
essarily intend to pursue formal education beyond the first two years of college. 

The College also serves as an educational and cultural center for the commun- 
ities of which it is an integral part. , him^#^

The College is a member of the American Association for Higher Educatidn, the J 
American Association of Junior Colleges, the American Society for Public Aclm^nis-f 
tration, the Association of Departments of English, the Association of Departm^ent^f 
Foreign Language, the College and University Eleven Thirty Users Group, the East-
